Cool Hunting Video Presents: Cut & Paste

Designers battle it out in a tournament-style competition, and CH takes part in the judging

A little more than a year ago, CH sponsored
Cut & Paste
, the first design competition to square designers against each other in a live tournament-style battle. From the initial sold-out event in NYC, Cut & Paste has grown into a nationwide tour with stops in four cities featuring local designers and judges in each spot. For episode 55, CH joined the party that kicked-off their national series at a Brooklyn warehouse-turned-club to document eight of the best young New York designers duking it out on stage. The video captures the three high-energy rounds, a lively 1200-person audience and an unexpected turn. You’ll have to watch to find out which of CH’s crew stepped in last-minute to replace a judge who was sick.
